When I try to open pay bills online I get the following message "This is not allowed unless you are an approved partner."
Let me first welcome you here in the Community, lvassar_ellingto.
Not to worry, I'm here to ensure you'll be able to open Pay Bills Online without the error message. One possible cause of this issue could be browser-related. The stored cache in your browser can affect the performance of QuickBooks Online that may lead to unexpected behavior.
To resolve this, I recommend logging in to your QuickBooks account via an incognito window. This doesn't use the existing cache files, which makes it a good place to determine if there's an issue with the browser.
Here are the keyboard shortcuts:
Safari: Command + Shift + N
Google Chrome: CTRL + Shift + N
Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge: CTRL + Shift + P
Once signed in, open the Pay Bills Online. If it works, we'll have to clear the cache of your main browser. This helps remove its stored cache to improve the program's performance.
If private browsing doesn't work, I'd suggest using different browsers. They'll provide you the best and most secure experience with QuickBooks. For more details, see this article: System Requirements For QBO.
However, if the same result, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Support. One of our representatives can securely look into your account to figure out the main cause of this.
